Health is truly an irreplaceable wealth. What we eat is what builds our body and nurtures our mind. Eating the right kind of food is the best investment we can make towards our own health. We all make mistakes and amending them in the right time is a wise decision. A few sporadic junk meals will do no harm but if the sporadic junk becomes our staple diet than it needs immediate revision. Here are some great tips to keep you eating and living healthier.
Exercise and Diet
No matter how hard we exercise to keep up a perfect body weight and body shape, if our food choice is not healthy then we won’t meet our goal! Munching up delicious burgers for lunch and then running on the treadmill for 45 minutes will not give us a long-lasting result. Eating whole, green, fresh foods is the trick to achieve a long-lasting good health. Introducing the rainbow-colored foods in our diet is the ultimate choice for a nutritious and balanced meal because colored vegetables are a storehouse of various sources of body nourishing nutrition. Eating healthy foods not only guarantees a healthy body but it also helps to remove the toxic build up from our system.
We bath every day to cleanse our body externally but how many of us ponder on the fact that our body needs an internal cleaning too? Packaged foods, fast foods, junk foods and even our regular meals leave behind residue which needs proper removal from our internal system. Water is the supreme health tonic which cleanses our system internally. No commercially manufactured health drink will be able to replace the benefits of water.
Introducing a healthy list of foods will help us to clean our system in the natural way, leaving us with no side effects. A bit of food knowledge, an enthusiastic mind, and the urge to take healthy eating breaks are only a few aspects that will help us get going.
Vegetables, Fruits and Nuts
Fresh fruits are a storehouse of with vitamin A, B, C, K. They help to hydrate the body and boost the immune system. Keeping ourselves limited to natural food sources like vegetables, fruits, nuts are ideal for a cleansing diet; it is advisable to stay far away from altered, processed and packaged foods. These foods contain very less amount of nutrition and are a source of saturated fats which increase the bad cholesterol in our body. For instance it’s better to eat a handful of nuts when the worst hunger pains strike in between meals, than to eat a packaged berry muffin.
Incorporating whole grains in the diet will guarantee the intake of carbohydrate in its natural form. They will have a mild effect on our digestive tract hence they will add-on to the cleansing process. Eating in small batches is perfect. It helps us to stay full throughout the day and hence, kills faux hunger pains.
Listening to our body is the key to living a healthy lifestyle and developing healthy eating habits. We must start slow and then proceed with sporadic alterations to be successful. Always remember that “Rome was not built-in a day”. Introducing a healthy diet in small steps will buy us the biggest benefits of health, a clean body and a clean mind.
